    I'm reburning the cd. I've been trying it out on my windows box. I checked the md5sum and it is fine.

    I rebooted it. It loaded to about 10% and then i got the "error reading boot cd" message again.

    Did you do the CD integrity check first? It sounds like a bad burn to me, assuming there isn't a problem with the CD drive on the windows box (hardware related). Maybe the drive needs to be cleaned? Just throwing out a couple of ideas.

    Make sure to use Disk Utility if you're burning it on a mac - and make sure you're burning using the .iso file... not the files the .iso generates.

    I burned it again on the slowest possible setting. It still isn't working. I'm having a friend burn it for me. Maybe it was just a bad torrent. Does any one have a link to a good one? I'm using http://www.mininova.org/tor/1352774.

    The ubuntu mirrors include torrents.

    I burned it at a friends house and it works. It must be my piece of crap burner. Thank you to every one who replied here.

    I had no problem burning an ISO image of Ubuntu on Intel Mac, using Toast.
